Life is full of turns and twists. It doesn't matter who you are, everyone is presented with more opportunities and possibilities than any one person can take advantage of during a lifetime.
The challenge is, making the decision to do something or not to do it. Typically, when one of these opportunities presents itself, we seek counsel from family, friends, trusted colleagues, doctors, lawyers, business consultants, teachers/professors, clergy, financial advisers, etc. We look to them for the answer(s) we need to make the correct decision.
